Waiting for an outcome

We advise all students to remember that when you’re applying for exceptional circumstances, you should work to the deadline until you have received confirmation that your application has been approved.

If you don’t know the outcome of your application, you should submit what work you have done by your deadline (be that the original deadline or a revised deadline because you’re using the extension allowed by the ISP) if you want to ensure that it is marked.

If you are subsequently told that your application for and extension because of exceptional circumstances has been approved, you will have an opportunity to submit a revised piece of work. 

If you are given another opportunity to take an assessment, e.g. a resit or a retake, then the work you have already submitted will not be marked.
